The scenic paved 5K course winds through the beautiful campuses of Western Piedmont Community College (WPCC), the NC School of Science and Math (NCSSM) and the NC School for the Deaf (NCSD) with a backdrop of the South Mountains. 

As this is an evening race (start time is 6:30 p.m.), glow sticks will be provided and the use of headlamps or flashlights is recommended, and in the spirit of a Halloween-themed race, costumes are encouraged and prizes will be awarded to the 3 best costumes as determined by the judges. Post-race refreshments will include the usual plus hot dogs and apple cider. 

A cotton-polyester blend long-sleeve t-shirt or sweatshirt is included in the entry fee, but participants can get hooded sweatshirts instead for an additional $6. Shirt selections can be guaranteed only for those who register prior to October 13. 

This chip-timed event is suitable for competitive runners as well as those who wish to enjoy the course at a more leisurely pace.
